At the close of a long day, Inspector Stephen Villani stands in the bathroom of a luxury apartment high above the city. In the glass bath, a young woman lies dead, a panic button within reach. So begins the sequel to Peter Temple's bestselling masterpiece, The Broken Shore. Villani's life is his work. It is his identity, his calling, his touchstone. But now, over a few sweltering summer days, as fires burn across the state and his superiors and colleagues scheme and jostle, he finds all the certainties of his life are crumbling. Truth is a novel about a man, a family, a city. It is about violence, murder, love, corruption, honour and deceit. And it is about truth.
Five-time winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Crime Fiction, Peter Temple is Australia's most acclaimed crime and thriller writer. He is the author of four Jack Irish novels and has also written four standalone novels: An Iron Rose (1998), Shooting Star (1999), In the Evil Day (2002) and The Broken Shore (2006), winner of the CWA Gold Dagger for Crime Fiction in 2007. He lives in Ballarat, Australia, with his family.
"The sense of place is stifling in its intensity, and seldom has a waltz of the damned proven so hypnotic." - The Guardian. "Great locations, hard-nosed dialogue and a twisting plot combine to create superb entertainment." - Evening Standard. "What makes Temple so compelling is his divine use of language. The novel is written with grace and subtlety, elegant but also violent, dark and yet suffused with sympathy for the protagonists, cast in dialogue that is both distinctive and surprising." - Daily Mail. "With crackling prose and sparkling dialogue, Temple has fashioned a fast-paced atmospheric police work of genuine class." - Mail on Sunday.
